I'm watching it right now....the Audi R8 seems to be kicking ass! Porsche on the other hand does not! Panoz is doing pretty well too.

Well I'm going back to the race..

It was a very good race.Alan McNish is a kick ass driver.I can't wait until next year when the Vipers have a lot more competition.The Saleen entry looks like it might be the dominant force.

Must resist ... urge to name-drop rising ... must must resist ... urge to name-drop rising ... ah, darnit ...

My dad designed the 5th place finisher, the Reynard 2KQ. Oh, and did the race version of the Viper (The GTS-R).

Sorry. I've got it out of my system now, honest.

I'll be at the Petit Le Mans race at the end of this month at Road Atlanta. I really wanted to go last year but had a death in the family the day before the race. I prolly won't wanna sit there for 10 hours (that's just way too much beer drinking time for the hour drive back home).

I'm going with a bunch of other car nuts so it should be a good time...

My gawd those Audi's were awesome. The whole competition was taking it up the tail pipe :p

And what happened to the Corvettes? Did the big, bad Vipers scare them away from Portland?? :D
